I take apple cider vinegar first thing every morning, one teaspoon in a glass of water. It helps a lot with bowel movement, clearing my recent
mysterious allergies and generally with waking up the liver. It also helps with many other things, like menstrual pains and weight control and if I
miss it more than one day I definitely feel it.
I also take milk thistle and vit C ( natural extracts) more or less regularly because I smoke and drink tons of black coffee so I need to replace the
vitamins and minerals that the coffee destroy. Seasonally I take ginseng and some algae (chlorela and spirulina) they are absorbed best in the body
and contain everything I need.
Oregano oil is something never missing in my house, whenever a flu is trying to making the rounds is the best preventive supplement for everyone in
the family. I even treated my dog eye infection with it. Baths with lots of Epsom salt occasionally, for the magnesium, plantain and tumeric tea
whenever my throat is sore or just dried up from smoking.
Also occasionally (not frequent enough) I go to wet sauna cause I have a cheap deal; it's a blessing for the tired body, and fees like I'm 10 years
younger. I walk a lot daily, because I like it a lot and sometimes play tennis; I also swim when I get to go to the beach, since I live 15 min away
from it. No other physical exercises, to my great shame
I eat only poultry and fish, and as much as possible fresh; no heavy meats, no alcohol, lots of fresh salads. Minimum bread or pastas. When eating out
I prefer chinese meals not mcdonalds
I don't force myself to this diet, it just fits my taste.
But then to compensate I eat tons of sweets LOL
I agree that a healthy diet is best, but my life style is a bit chaotic so I try to complete my lazy diet with supplements.
As for today (44 y/o) I am overall healthy and didn't visit a doctor in years, never take any medicine except the occasional advil for late night
headaches with the computer. No cholesterol, blood pressure or other nasty businesses like that.
Hope to stay this way for a long time to come.
